Preparing for the Gathering - 1 Cor. 8:1-6
Prepare your heart for our Sunday Morning Gathering by looking through these suggestions that will assist you in making the most of our time together.
You will find tangible suggestions for putting scripture to action in your personal life and in our corporate body, links to the songs we will sing, and lyrics for you to prepare for our corporate singing.
Please see the Preparing for the Sermon post for suggestions in thinking more critically through the passage, meditating more intently on the text, and prayerfully seeking wisdom to deepen your understanding of the passage to be preached this Sunday.
- Seek the Lord’s forgiveness for the prideful knowledge that is in your heart. Ask for his grace to help you strive for love instead of simply knowledge.
- In your daily walk with the Lord, instead of pursuing simply knowledge, pursue obedience to the truth characterized by love.
- Examine your thoughts regarding contemporary issues that correspond with eating meat offered to idols. Do you need to repent for having a haughty mindset focused on your “superior knowledge”? Do you need to seek forgiveness for those who you have harmed?
- Click the links below to find the lyrics and recordings of the songs planned for our gathering this Sunday; practice the songs, study the lyrics and sing together.
- Pray for those leading our corporate gathering this week and for the Holy Spirit’s work as the Word of God is further explained and applied: Joel Conrad: music; Rob Stouffer: Elders' prayer & Scripture Reading; Bret Capranica: teaching.
